This is a small, highly personalized spa, dedicated to serving one client at a time, by appointment. Located close to the center of town, just across the street from the Oasis Hotel & Restaurant in a tranquil, beautiful setting facing the Baru volcano and the Caldera River. A graduate of the Muscular Therapy Institute (Cambridge MA) with 18 1/2 years of professional practice and continuing Board Certification by the U.S. National Certifying Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB), Kitzie offers a variety of affordable luxury spa facials with products of exceptional quality from the U.S. (Shea Terra Organics) and Italy (L'Herbolario) and her own creative combinations of therapeutic and relaxation massage and bodywork, using organic Jojoba extract and techniques including the Swedish-based techniques of her school's founder, Ben Benjamin, LomiLomi Nui, basic Upledger craneo-sacral techniques, reflexology, manual lymph drainage for face and neck, and energy work, depending on her clients' preferences. See our website for a map and rates, as well as a description of techniques.
